Internet options

  Kingfisher 17:27 23 May 2011

Hi everyone, My friend has xp sp3 pc.the problem is he cannot open internet options in the tools menu of internet explorer, it flashes up then nothing, all other options within tools are all accessable. He is using IE8 supplied by Yahoo, I have tried downloading IE8 from Microsoft, but then IE8 wont open at all. I think I need to uninstall the yahoo version of IE8 then try and download The MIcrosoft version, but am wary of doing this in case He ends up with no IE8 at all. Any help with trying to resolve this problem would be appreciated many thanks
